Mad Dogs & Englishmen Carignan Shiraz Tempranillo

This wine is ruby to dark crimson in color, with aromas of wild raspberry, notes of clove, black pepper, ripe black fruits, vanilla, and cinnamon.

Varietal Composition60% Carignan, 20% Tempranillo, and 20% Shiraz

Mad Dogs & Englishmen vineyards grow 30-year-old Monastrell on ungrafted rootstock as well as Carignan, Mazuelo, Tempranillo, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Each vintage is a blend of different varieties, based on the character of the grapes that year. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks and aging in French and American oak to create a bold, elegant Spanish wine with raspberry aromas, cherry flavors, and a long-lingering finish. Norrel Robertson is, in fact, Scottish; the bodegas know him as El Escoces Volante (The Flying Scotsman). Norrel has worked in every aspect of winery operations in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres and now consults at top estates across Spain. He studied post-graduate viticulture and oenology in New Zealand and is the only Master of Wine based in Spain.
